  4. 4. Energy Harvesting and Energy Storage for Wireless and Less-Wired Sensors in Harsh Environments

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Elof Köhler; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermoelectric; Thermoelectric harvester; harsh environment; piezoelectric harvester; supercapacitor; coupled harvester; Piezoelectric; Energy harvester;

    Abstract : Engineering requires sensors to control and understand the environment. This is particularly important in harsh environments. The drawbacks, especially in gas turbines is the complexity of installing a wired sensor and the weight of the wires. This makes wireless sensors attractive. READ MORE

  5. 5. Energy Harvesting for Wireless and Less-Wired Sensors in Gas Turbines

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Elof Köhler; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; coupled harvester; piezoelectric harvester; piezoelectric; Energy harvester; thermoelectric harvester; harsh environment; thermoelectric; self-tuning;

    Abstract : Four types of energy harvesters aimed for gas turbine applications were developed during this thesis. The unique gas turbine environment shaped the design- and material choices. A semiconductor thermoelectric harvester was built for a location in the gas turbine with active cooling at 600°C, with 800°C wall temperature. READ MORE
